Where every legal detail counts: Mergers, Defaults, Year-end board meetings with the accountant,
“We know exactly who said what and when….that’s true accountability for everybody involved. And this very precise logging of the events will hardly cost time…a summary is ready in a jiffy”
Political Decision Making
“We have the recording of every individual…never a hassle again about who said what ...all processed into a precise transcript…automatically for the most part. From the exact transcript we take it to the minutes of the meeting: copy-paste, a little editing and…. Done."
“This will save me lots of time….correcting the Autotranscript in stead of typing everything myself.."
The start to an interview to be processed by the M>D system is a good individual audio recording of every participant in the meeting, or here: the interview.
You - as the interviewer - and the person(s) to be interviewed are equipped with a smartphone on which the M>DApp is installed.
The smartphones become the recording devices.
Audio will be picked up by a headset. This may be a simple wired earpiece, but you get better results with high quality Bluetooth headsets, like the Motorola Whisperer. You can buy these in our webshop.
To speed up the process you can bring a set of smartphones already paired with a headset.
When the M>DApp is started on every smartphone, the App detects all possible participants nearby…You, as the interviewer, initiate the interview, by giving it a name…”Interview with Mr Antonio”. The participants – perhaps mr Guterres wil, also bring his press officer – acknowledge that they will join in and…..you start the interview.
At the end, M>DApp tells you that the individual recordings are transferred to the M>D Webportal.
When you open your account on the M>DWebportal you will find the “Interview with Mr Antonio” just uploaded. The M>D AutoTranscribe function will tell you the estimated costs for the AutoTranscript. If necessary, M2D will ask you to top up the balance of your account.
For a larger organization which is frequently uses M>D it's possible to set up a central billing account, that accommodates multiple users.
You may then start AutoTranscription: Audio bytes are processed to textbytes that will be lined up chronologically. This processing on our M>DWebportal will take some time.
And….a miracle…..there’s the Autotranscript of your interview.
The Autotranscript is never hundred percent correct: On the M>D Webportal you can edit the Autotranscript.
Then its time to mail the interview to whomever it concerns: Mr. Antonio, his Press Officer, the editors of your media…etc.
Click… click... and accurate in every detail.
If you can report an interview with Mr Antonio or one of his successors, processed through M>D, we will send you a nice bottle of wine…the colour is your choice…
Enjoy…working with M>D!
“Saves tons of time processing the interviews, but the exact transcript is also the best start for a thorough, automatic analasys of larger data-sets….”
The actual interviewing is much the same as described for the journalism application.
Once you have the recordings and transcripts – and wow, how much time have you saved there – you may start (numerical) analysis with all the best computer tooling available.
Your data are exact: your results are accurate… and they arrive quickly from every possible angle.
Enjoy…working with M>D.
“Legal proceedings should be precise…This has been a painstaking labour for many years...but with the possibility of a first draft produced by M>D AutoTranscription, most of the work is done by the machine…We just edit and correct the AutoTranscript manually… the human, final touch…and a lot of work is done.. ”
M>D uses a tablet for every microphone in the courtroom as a recording device. These individual recordings are transferred to the M>D Webportal, where the AutoTranscript function only has to deal with one voice at a time.
Directional microphones minimize cross talk and background noise. You can find these in our webshop, we consider engineering jewels.
The text bytes from the AutoTranscripts per microphone/person are then sequenced into one document.
The AutoTranscript is the best you can get, but not perfect. In the M>D webportal the AutoTranscript can be edited and corrected to a 100 percent flawless transcript. While editing you can hear the original sound tracks or the mix. The sound and text are automatically aligned with each other. If you scroll through the sound, the cursor will follow and vice versa.
We may integrate M>D in an existing courtroom audio system or we may supply a completely new system where the M>D functionality is combined with the normal audio functions, voting system, etc.
“There’s a lot of effort in making a good transcript of an interrogation... The Auto Transcript makes it a walk in the park. With the on-line editing tool we can always check the original recording next to the transcript….Ending all discussions about what was said and by whom.”
It’s not always necessary to edit the Auto Transcript. In many cases the Auto Transcript is good enough for queries through a large volume of text. Once the key words are found, we may take a closer look by listening to the original audio.
For the interrogation of foreigners seeking asylum, we could add an automatic translation. Not perfect, but a good start.
“For a thorough evaluation of a roleplay, we use the exact transcript. Until now this was a lot of work... M>D will do most of that work for us. The Auto Transcript is a good start for the absolutely correct reproduction of what was said…so our students will get the most out of their effort ”
The participants can move around freely: the smartphone that serves a recording device in their pocket. The moderator of the roleplay may interrupt the play, and also the recordings. A standard feature of the M>DApp.
Download the app
MeetingtoDocs makes a recording and AutoTranscript of your meeting . The App produces an individual recording of each participant. These recordings are forwarded to our Webportal where a speech-to-text engine produces an automatic transcript. The text bytes are merged into a document: the transcript of your meeting. You may edit the good – but not perfect –transcript, while listening to the original audio.
